Creator: Chikao Ohtsuka
That's right. Good. There's no need to go just yet.
~ Big BossChikao Ohtsuka (July 5, 1929 - January 15, 2015) was one of the oldest and veteran seiyu in the business. He is Akio Ohtsuka's father, and they've worked together in several series, making them a rare father-son pair working in tandem in the business. He has been the signature voice of Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik in the Sonic the Hedgehog games. His forte are mostly old, past-their-prime men, which can range from Cool Old Guy or Evil Old Folks; the latter can be raised Up to Eleven to monstrosity levels (he even dubbed Hitler!).Sadly, he has passed away on January 15, 2015 due to an Ischemic Heart Disorder. May he rest in peace.
